Practical Engineering

I decided to make the steering chain from 1 mm diameter copper wire. I first made a nut and bolt wire bender but was unhappy with the shape of the links.  So decided to make a tool to do the job (actually 2 tools) the wire bender and a wire guillotine to maintain a constant cut length.

In total approximately 120 links are required
